For some of us it is easy to get sidetracked and that is why we need a map of our day. We may think that it is a burden to have these things to do but in the long run it pays off in that you will have time to do the things you want to do and be able to laugh at the times to come, because all the routine stuff that bears down on us, will be done.
If we take each area and write down what needs to be done or even what we would like to do and then schedule it on a daily list, on a calendar, on your computer or phone to remind you of what you can accomplish. Also to spend a little time each day planning as the Psalms tells us:
So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.
